For now, there won't be Netflix on the Apple Vision Pro, and according to the streaming service provider's co-CEO, it's not worth the effort to make the app work on the headset right now.
Pre-orders for the Vision Pro began last week, and Ming-Chi Kuo wrote a few days ago that the company has sold between 160,000 and 180,000 units of the device so far.
In an interview with Stratechery, Netflix co-CEO Greg Peters They betrayed himthat the app is not available for the device because there are not enough potential subscribers with headphones to make it worth converting the app to work properly on the new platform.
Of course, this doesn't mean there will never be Netflix on the Vision Pro, rather the streaming giant may be waiting to see how sales and popularity of the product category develop.
Currently, neither YouTube nor Spotify are planning native apps for the device, but the content they offer can be consumed through the browser.
Apple TV+ is of course available on the Vision Pro, and in addition, we get not only a virtual display, but also the so-called Apple Immersive Video format, which means 180-degree 3D video in 8K resolution with spatial audio.
Incidentally, Netflix is available on the Meta Quest, Quest 2, and Quest Pro headsets, and in 2015 a virtual reality app was released, as well as a 360-degree video of Stranger Things on YouTube.
